If you were old enough in the Eighties and living in California, then you’re probably familiar with the truly heinous tale of the East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker (EAR/ONS). If not, this latest indie film will bring you up-to-speed on just what the word “horror” means.
Director Cameron Cloutier dropped us a line tonight to give us the first look at the one-sheet for his current project Bird with a Broken Wing, which is based on the true story of Janelle Lisa Cruz (pictured right), who was the last known victim of the East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker – the most wanted serial killer/sex offender in California history (still to this day). Throughout the years over 50 rapes, numerous break-ins and 10 murders that stretch the length of California have been attributed to this bastard, and very few people have ever even heard of him.
“The film will chronicle her life as well the killer’s crimes as they each continue to move a step closer to meeting that fateful night, examining the reason why she was the last,” Cloutier tells us. “The film is based on my own extensive research and interviews with the family members that I’ve conducted over the last two years, which in turn has caused the FBI to carefully look at a few suspects a bit more closely thanks to the info I’ve gathered.”
